Sure this may have been done before but just wondering if people have any match day superstitions?
Never really had any, though the past few weeks I haven't watched any football at all in the belief that we may hit the play offs if I don't.
Gather you aren't going tomorrow then WHW?
I have to touch the Top metal plaque on the Billy Wright Statue entering the ground and after the game. This will sound weird but I have to have a clear path to it and have no obstruction, it has to be one process or I feel like it's a bad omen.
Yes...I know, I may have OCD tendencies.
To walk through the subway (no matter which way i'm going to the ground!!)
I wear a chain around my neck. It is washed on match days so that the gold gleams.
When watching games on sky my mate and I keep a set seat if we are undefeated. If we lose the seating arrangements change. As this is wolves we are talking about we have exhausted all known configurations!!
The only superstition I had was before the Playoff Final. I needed a haircut but just couldn't get it done before the game.
On match day I wear nothing that has colours in it of the opposition unless they are like Wolves.
If I can't make a game and sit and watch Sky I have to have things lined up. So if Wolves are the home team they will be on the left of the screen as I look at it and if away on the right. Whatever side of the screen Wolves are on is the side I have the TV remote on and if on the left I will always cross my legs so as the left is higher than the right and vice versa depending.
And if Wolves are winning or drawing I hate things to change. I can be busting for the loo but won't move for fear of it having a change in the Time Wolves continuum If they're losing then I don't care as we need things to change.
I like to keep something that bulges under my coat so that fit steward girl searches me.
6 pints of sunbeam before every home game
Let me guess, yes yes I've got it, you roll up you're programme.
So what do I win for guessing correctly?
Never had a pint of it as yet but heard it mentioned many a time.
What sort of beer is it kwolf?
its an ale or type of bitter
Cheers. I like varying drinks but never been a great lover of bitter but if I see it tomorrow may well try one.
come to the stile plenty in there lol
Is the stile the one in Whitmore Reans about 5 mins walk from what used to be the Goalposts?
no that would be the ashtree if you got there and turn left walk about 500 hundred yards turn right you will see the stile on your left hand side
On a housing estate?
Is it's the one I'm thinking of located on a corner?
yes thats the one
I do exactly the same
May well see you there then kwolf.
Just look for three blokes with Essex type accents. The oldest is thinning on top with glasses and I'll have a black Wolves top on, very short hair and wear glasses,also have a few Wolves tattoos on both arms.
Whoops I do that too
ok essex wolf will look out for you
Look forward to it mate.
I believe going by your name you possibly hail from Kingswinford?
If so do you know Ash Brooks, Big Gaz, Steve Jones etc? Used to drink in the Prince Albert.
no mate its short for kieron
Cheers, my mistake.
I wear the same clothes - washed between matches of ourselves - the same 2 wolves scarves (both old ones from the 2 league cup wins) and my lucky lippy,
Never been into Lippy myself.
I emigrated and stopped going to games. It seems to have worked for the last season and half
As a Pant Wetter, I wear the same pair of pants, which I wet at 2.59pm precisely*
*unless it is an evening kickoff, where I go commando.
In the Prem season where we took a few big scalps, I noticed that Wolves won whenever my mum sat on the step on the phone to a certain friend during a match.
I genuinely made her sit on the step for the entire match vs Liverpool (Ward goal at the Kop, 1-0) and it worked a treat. Things went tits up not so long after (and I no longer live at home 24/7) so these days I just bet on the other team and it usually works.
I was always superstitious when I played - shin-pads on in a particular order, same warm up routine etc, but I seem to have got more superstitious (or dafter) as I've got older !
The routine includes, particular T-shirts, different for home and away. What and how much I drink in the boozer (Sunbeam the last two seasons), the route from boozer to ground which changes if we lose one, and the same turnstile.
Its either superstition, or I'm just boring and like a set routine.
At least I don't feel as though I need to worry about myself so much now I know there are others out there just the same as me when it comes to the superstition stuff.
I always wear a replica shirt if I'm attending and nothing Wolves related if I'm not
Yep...same turnstile, and I always give the begging bloke in the subway some change and pat his dog
Can you reach it.
